Half Skull Eye


Finished this piece a few weeks ago and I've been really anxious to share it with everyone. The wood panels are beautiful once primed, excluding the particularly challenging need to soak-up and eat my paint, so it takes lots of layering and blending. Conceptually, I started fantasizing about the integration of bone, various skulls and horns... sounds strange but I wanted to experiment with the dynamics of a little darker side. She's so wickedly pretty... I love it.
Happy Friday!

DIY: Malian Mud Cloth Bench

Last year, hidden away in a dusty corner of one of my favorite antique stores, I discovered this decorative wooden bench. The $20 price tag and carved details were too good to ignore and I quickly scooped it up. Even with its (original) dingy blue legs and worn crushed velvet body, I hoped that one day I could restore its soulless existence into something more appealing. After a little black paint and the beautiful design of this hand-woven Malian mud cloth, it looks better than ever!
